My daughter rented this dress for her prom - it is stunning in person! However runs a little short (it was short on her even though we ordered the long); in the bust runs a little large. For someone with more of an hourglass figure the fit would probably be perfect. She still loved the dress but the fit was not ideal.

I rented this dress for prom and it was definitely the most beautiful dress I've ever worn. The bust does run a little large but it's really not that noticeable. I wore 6-inch high heels and the length was fine. I received a ton of compliments and my favorite part is the back. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Beautiful dress. I wore it to Prom and got many compliments. I always thought I had a regular sized chest. I wear a 36B, and the top was a little roomy. Also, I was concerned because I have big hips it would be snug, but it wasn't at all. Overall, I was thrilled with it.

i ordered a 4 (my usual size) and a 2 and i preferred the 2 much more!! i would not have worn the 4 because there would have been too much space in the bust since there's only one strap. i work as a personal stylist and this dress was PERFECT for looking the part but not going over the top. the back is stunning!! and the regular fit was great with my heels. i wore 2 inch because it was for a wedding and i'd be on my feet. so if you want to wear some louboutins or really high shoes, i'd go for the long.

Looked stunning in this dress for my first Marine Corps Ball!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Beautiful dress! Unfortunately RTR was unable to send the 4R i requested, so they sent me a back up dress which i hated. I was able to squeeze into the 2R, which fit beautifully actually. My only complaint is that the dress runs small, which has been stated in previous posts as well. I had to find a very low heel, which was still too high for the dress. No one cared or noticed though, and I still felt beautiful in this dress.

Excellent fit, but it was just a tad bit short. Other than that it was perfect, I got a lot of compliments!

Pretty dres

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I liked this dress but I ended up going with another dress that was more os a showstopper. I tried on a 6 and I think a 4 might have been a little better. The bodice was a bit loose on me. I also thought that the fabric on the hip was sort of awkward and I couldn't get it to lie right. Also, the reglar length was substantially shorter than the other 58 inch regular length dress I rented that night and other nights.

This dress fit my pear shaped body perfectly. I loved everything about it and received many compliments. The fabric was good quality and did not wrinkle at all.

Too much fabric in the wrong places

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is beautifully made, but there is a lot of fabric. I am curvy, so the draping at the hips just wasn't flattering. There are a lot of unique features, particularly the back of the dress. If you are tall and not curvy, this dress could be stunning. If you are 5'5" or under, the dress will likely overwhelm you. It was my back-up, so the evening was still a success.

Loved the dress from head to toe, it truly made me feel like royalty. I got so many complements from so many people at prom and truly nobody wore such a nice dress like this one! I would definitely rent it again, complete perfection.

my third choice for prom, but I loved it!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Though this wasn't my preferred dress, I had a great time in it. Loved the dark navy and the back was my favorite part! The front looked better on me than I thought it would, but the top was very large for my 36B bust. However, a few safety pins did the trick so I could dance all night. Very comfortable and perfect length for me. I wore it with 5 in wedges but it was a great length with flats also. Very happy with my first rental!

Jessica is a lifesaver! She overnighted a smaller size and it fit perfectly!

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm usually a size 10, but the bust was HUGE! Jessica sent me the size 8 which fit PERFECTLY. I got so many compliments and the dress was so flattering, I wanted to keep it!
